Nestled in the Aravalis, 235 km from Delhi, Sariska was once the hunting ground for Maharaja’s, today it is a national park popularly known as Sariska National Park, where one can see tigers and other animals in natural surroundings.

These grounds once had goats tied to poles to attract tigers for the kings hunting outings. In 1955, hunting, shooting, trapping or capturing of wild animals was made illegal. In 1958, the reserve was upgraded to a sanctuary, and later, areas contiguous to the sanctuary were also included.

Sariska National Park, covered with thick forests provides an opportunity to view tiger, langur, nilgai and various bird species like crested hawk eagle, golden back woodpecker, pied kingfisher, lapwings etc. Apart from the wildlife and forests, Sariska is surrounded by numerous places of historical interest, interspersed with temples and monuments, which enhances its beauty.

There are three large lakes within the boundary of the park: Mangalsar (also called Mansarovar), Siliserh (to the north-east of the park), and Somasagar.

The Sariska Palace in the national park, built in the 19th century as a hunting lodge is now converted into a heritage hotel.

The city is located in Alwar district and can be considered a central point for visiting various attractions within its vicinity.

The Sariska Palace is great luxurious option to stay here. You may opt for RTDC’s Hotel Tiger Den for a budget stay.
